Changing the name of a timer

Community Member

When I start a new timer (e.g., Hey Google, set a potato timer for 30 minutes) it does start the timer and it usually gives it the name. But other times it misunderstands the name or misses it altogether. In those cases I really want a way to add or change the name of a running timer.

When I try to do so it says it can't do that.

Am I missing something?

If not, *please* make this work! It's important when you have multiple timers.
